what? a steamed noodle-and-cornmeal pancake??? i have no idea what this would taste like.

250 g rice vermicelli

100 g corn flour

2 T. Oil

Method :
Soak the vermicelli in very hot water for about 5 minutes.

Drain thoroughly.

The vermicelli should be as dry as possible.

Put them into a large mixing bowl. Cover with with corn flour, making sure it is well coated.

Bring some water to the boil in a steamer and grease the steamer rack with some of the oil.

Spread some of the noodles out flat over the steamer rack in a thin layer to make a 25 cm pancake.

Cover and steam for about 6-7 minutes.

Remove the cake to a board either with a spatula or by inverting the steamer rack.

Re-oil the rack and make the next noodle cake.

You should make four in all.

As the cakes cool down on the board, they form a sort of pancake.

Cut them into squares shape.

Serve warm.
